This year, the Show Chair’s Theme is “It’s a Charmed Life!”

Charm Quilts have been around for over 150 years. They are referred to by many names: One Patch, indicating a single shape; Beggar, indicating that the quilter begged for fabric; and Odd-Feller, indicating no repeats in fabrics. Some very recognizable patterns include 1000 Pyramids, Grandmother’s Flower Garden, Apple Core and Postage Stamp.

For the purposes of the show theme category, here are the rules:

  • ONE SHAPE ONLY! You can use various sizes of the same shape in the quilt.
  • You can repeat fabrics in the quilt.
  • The edges of the quilt may have partial shapes where the sides were squared up, but the body of the quilt can have only one shape.
  • Borders and applique are allowed but should be an accent, not the focus.

Quilts can be one-person, two-person or group. Add a little charm to your life in 2017!
